CITP Tech Policy Clinic

OverviewActivitiesTeachingPeople |Contact


CITP’s interdisciplinary tech policy clinic gives our research community the opportunity to contribute to vital policy discussions concerning the role of digital technologies in our society. We engage directly with policy makers to develop state-of-the-art research and we translate that research into practical proposals that advance the public interest. In keeping with Princeton’s commitment to service, the clinic provides nonpartisan research, analysis, and commentary to policy makers, industry participants, journalists, and the public. There is a long tradition of educating public-spirited lawyers through clinical programs; we are building a similar program for the next generation of public-spirited technologists.


AI Policy Precepts

Princeton University’s AI Policy Precepts is a non-partisan program designed to explore the core concepts, opportunities, and risks underlying the technology that will shape or influence federal policy making for the next ten years.

Tech Policy Case Studies

The CITP Tech Policy Case Studies series invites domain experts to share the real-world challenges that they confront and investigate how research can help inform their responses. The goal is to provide new avenues for collaborating on impactful research and deepen our understanding of the policy process. If you have ideas for specific projects we can tackle, please contact Mihir Kshirsagar.

Siegel Public Interest Technology Summer Fellowship

The Siegel PIT Summer Fellowship is aimed at giving rising juniors and seniors first hand experience in how technologists can advance the public interest at the federal, state and local level.

Policy Roundtables

We convene a forum for researchers and policy makers to engage in a detailed discussion of a specific topic under Chatham House rules. In late 2019, we held a day long roundtable discussion with the FTC about regulating online dark patterns. We will restart this program once the health restrictions lift.
